I'm just glad that I turned a lot of people on to the same.

It really hits deep. That said, I'm loving Patti's comment:

"We are Jerry's future. We lift our ear to his music. And we continue to live, smiling ourselves."

I guess we are on our own...

The truth of Patti's statement rings out as I sit here, blasting Jerry's "I will survive" into the summer air. Even though Hunter and a flood of others speak of Jerry's demise despairingly, here I am listening to 7-21-84, from Ventura, from the depth of his junk days. And Jerry lives on.

Was at those ventura shows - right after the three shows the weekend before up at greek. for that "down" year, those 5 shows and red rocks in summer of '84 treated me ok.

I'm not overly familiar with all of those shows, but the Ventura run caught my fancy this past month. Any highlights from the Greeks and Red Rocks to entice me with?

p.s. Did you catch any shows Summer '82? Manor Downs and Starlight Theater recordings are excellent.

Friday the 13th full moon over the golden gate in the far distance and shooting star flashing across the heavens as phil hits first notes of dark star encore? it was a moment (not necessarily captured on tape)

I like the scarlet>touch>fire from that second set on friday. a bit ragged in the scarlet/touch transition but fun nonetheless.
the sunday show was my fave. nice cat-rider (w/ ragged but fun why don't we do it the road prelude) and what I recall as a lovely china doll.

red rocks was fun b/c of venue and first mr fantasy was a surprise. other than that, no memories (other than 2 us blues in 3 days and lots of partying at chief hosa's)

Wow I am such a space cadet. Been diggin' that '84 Dark Star show for a few months now. Scarlet > Touch > Fire is kinda rough but an exciting change away from the norm. Intro to The Wheel is trippy and drippy. Dark Star a great standalone version that I like to throw in the waning moments of a day. Must have been something otherworldly of an experience!
